No, I missed that. Did they actually call it Ardbegeddon? I love Ardbeg - one of my top ten, possibly top five malts.

(And if you want to know that best I ever had it would have to be a single cask Longrow - apparently '74 bottlings are going for upwards of £1000/$1400 these days - I'd have to check but I think the next bottling is due either this year or next ...)

Rob -

I belong to an on line whisky forum (okay whisky geeks) we call The PLOWED (People Lucid Only When Enjoying Drams) Society. We have a whisky convention in Las Vegas each year around the Consumer Electronics Show. In 2000 we were trying to come up with a theme - someone coined the phrase "Ardbegeddon" in honor of the 9 days removed and over hyped Y2K rollover.

The following year we started with the 'private' bottlings and the PLOWED Society Ardbegeddon moniker stuck.
